Ticket Sequencing

Ticket Sequencing


SpitAbility POS now supports "Time Sequencing" of tickets and orders held in the system.





Time Sequencing automatically arranges and displays tickets in correct chronological line-up on the Kitchen Display System (KDS).

Tickets shuffle to their correct position as times are adjusted.

Time sequencing:
  • Plays the role of a "virtual expeditor" to manage the flow of orders in real-time
  • Enables staff to focus on preparation rather than when to prepare
  • Shows future dated orders with a negative count-down timer and reverse time fuse in bright yellow

Updated Tickets:
  • Synchronize instantly on all screens
  • Shuffle into their correct sequence

Ticket Sequencing is typically used to manage on-line order ahead or delivery times into the future. Also in table service situation where courses are separated by a know duration.

Tickets may be time sequenced:
  • At any time before during or after orders are added to a ticket
  • By touching the time on the KDS ticket
  • Via the sell screen "Check.." button

Take control of your order management:

Dashboard Charts


SplitAbility pushes all user data back to the user's private and secure account in the form of a "transaction journal".

In our latest release we have added a built-in dashboard. The dashboard calculates total sales for various time intervals:
  • Hourly
  • Daily
  • Weekly
  • Monthly
  • Yearly
Examples of the the dashboard formats are shown here and can be adjusted for any date / time period using the toolbar and calendar:

These charts are a handy way to set or check other business activity e.g. staff level scheduling or takings from previous time periods.


Other built-in reports include inventory and best sellers.

So, here's how it works:
  • Waitress at the POS splits the check using "Quick Split" to divide the bill.
  • The POS hands each total over to an integrated payments terminal.
  • Each customers taps to pay their share.

Bump Screens & Order Visibility

The improvements in the speed of processing orders just keep coming!

This week sees the release of single item "Touch to Serve" buttons for ready items on all overview screens.


Touch to Serve Buttons

Servers simply touch these buttons to change the state of an order item from "Ready" to "Served". So for single items it's one less touch to declutter screens.

Category and bulk state change buttons work as before i.e. Are accessed by selecting (click or touch) any order item.

Real-time Kitchen Display Systems (Smart KDS) offer advantages not seen before in the hospitality industry.

Reduction in service times is the big one but add in improved accuracy and more productive and the advantages stack up.

You can only get so far shuffling printed dockets around. Smart KDS screens display orders the instant each order is selected rather than waiting for the entire order, thus giving bock of house staff a heads up on what is coming through, check boxes appear only after the entire order is sent.

Reasons to go paperless are mounting. e.g. All cleared tickets are instantly accessible on the "Virtual Ticket Spike" from any screen, tablet or device.




Still think you should stick with printed dockets?
